♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. ♪ ♪ [ inaudible ] ♪ >> stephanie: i'm not entirely certain that was microwaveable. >> what did you do? >> did your bowl melt? >> stephanie: it is the "stephanie miller show." >> you have like toxic plastic fumes in your food now? >> antibiotics will kill that too. >> stephanie: uh-huh. karl frisch in the side car, we continue the right-wing world.
9:24am
it's an episode of wishful horrible things. tucker carlson. >> in general natural disasters have a capacity to hurt for example, katrina, than to help, or blame any candidates themselves. there are a number of people who have been blaming this on the global warming. this probably hurts obama a little bit in that it adds to the general feeling that things are amiss in america. the one swing state most affected by this storm, pennsylvania, and if there's one place you could see the effect of hurting the voter turnout, it would be virginia. >> stephanie: why. >> i have been waiting for him
9:25am
to go through puberty for 15 years. it is telling how off his analysis is just looking at the polls that have come out about the president's handling of this. 90% of the american people say he is doing a good job. in terms of climate change he named a few politicians -- >> stephanie: and obama didn't say i'm going to lower the level of the oceans as you recall. it is unbelievable. >> no al gore said the president should have said that and that's what the goal should be. any politician who uses that as a punch line should be punched in the nose. >> stephanie: exactly. bernard goldberg. >> do you think a number of reporters are sort of wishing at some level that the hurricane had not hit blue states like
9:26am
new york and new jersey like ohio -- i mean direct hit. i'm saying this only half tongue and cheek, but i'm thinking more than a few of them wish it would have hit there, because that might help president obama look presidential -- >> stephanie: he is gross. >> he is an idiot. >> stephanie: i mean really. >> that's who bill o'reilly turns to. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> do you think that maybe just a few might possibly believe? i mean do you think that maybe just a few fox news pundits might be off their rockers? [ laughter ] >> i mean it doesn't matter where this hurricane hit. it doesn't matter whatever politics the right-wing tries to asubscribe to it or how bonkers
9:27am
they have gone what matters is that the president is doing his job, and those things have helped him in the states. >> stephanie: thank you. i love how he said it tends to hurt the incouple bapt like treenia. here is dana. [ overlapping speakers ] >> you and al gore -- >> it didn't cause the hurricane. put that in your lockbox because it is not true. >> nobody said this caused the hurricane what scientists have said the warmer ocean has given the chance to have stronger hurricanes with bigger impact. >> stephanie: yes, thank you. >> nasa what do they know? >> stephanie: since they didn't cover it in the debate mother
9:28am
nature brought it up. and rush limbaugh -- wait a minute. >> i really haven't heard a whole lot about this being related to global warming. the whole thing has been proven to be a hoax. >> no. no. >> yeah speaking of hoax. thank you rush limbaugh. i always hate to use him as a pallet cleanser. stephanie just because you have david crosby on it is not appropriate just because you are a lesbian to ask him for a child. >> stephanie: thank you, karl frisch. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller showowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowow current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup.
9:29am

9:30am
[ male announcer ] red lobster's hitting the streets to tell real people about our new 15 under $15 menu. oh my goodness! oh my gosh this looks amazing! that's a good deal! [ man ] wow! it is so good! [ male announcer ] our new maine stays! 15 entrees under $15 seafood, chicken and more! oo! the tilapia with roasted vegetables! i'm actually looking at the wood grilled chicken with portobello wine sauce. you so fascinated by the prices, you keep rambling on! i know! -that pork chop was great! -no more fast food friday's! so we gotta go! we're going to go to red lobster. yep. [ male announcer ] try our 15 under $15 menu and sea food differently!

9:32am
9:33am
>> announcer: stephanie miller. >> cut the crap it won't wash here. >> stephanie: too bad. it is the "stephanie miller show." thirty-four minutes after the hour. jim we have one tidbit left in right-wing world. who is always the most wrong pundit ever? think. dick morris. >> you are standing by your prediction of a romney landslide? >> absolutely. romney will win this election by five to ten points and will
9:34am
carry more than 300 electoral votes. >> you know morris i have you booked from one week from tonight. >> but is my appearance going to be before or after you buy me dinner. [ applause ] >> stephanie: oh boy. you can read that in my book. this race will be between hilary and condy. >> how much will it cost? >> stephanie: kids we have turnout to worry about. ben jealous joining us now. good morning, ben. >> good morning. good morning. clearly the polls are looking good but you can't say it enough, turnout, turnout, turnout, and ground game right? >> yeah, this year folks really have to turn out, and really if
9:35am
you will find that reason deep inside them. and what we say at the naacp is look if somebody thinks your vote is important enough to try to steal it away from you or suppress it that should be validation enough that you have to show up and vote. >> stephanie: yeah ben, obviously a lot of our listeners -- the right-wing has been screaming voter are fraud. >> yes, and it is confounding. they managed to get people in a tizzy about this notion of voter voter -- my favorite is governor haley who earlier this year got
9:36am
front page that 900 dead people had voted. and then like page 23 three weeks later was governor actually no dead people voted, because they were dead. >> stephanie: yeah there's that. >> and so it's absolutely -- you know mind boggling that they have been able to pass laws on this lie. but when a law isn't created to solve a problem, it is created to be a problem, and that's why we have gotten so many governors to veto these things. but what we're most worried about now are the dirty tricks that come out. we have seen robo calls going out in spanish, telling people to vote on the 8th not the 6th. >> stephanie: and you can vote by phone. >> exactly.
9:37am
>> stephanie: you would think if they are so confident they wouldn't have to resort to this. >> yeah we saw the chairman of the republican party four or five years ago, say we can win without voter suppression, without vouter fraud and we can win on our ids. and that should be the motto. you do have people like governor snyder in michigan bob mcdonald in virginia who have taken great political risk but you have got a party that in too many places have been overrun by extremists who are willing to do whatever they can to win, and that's not what this country is about. >> stephanie: ben, i'm looking at the story in wisconsin, the romney watchers have been trained to mislead voters.
9:38am
they confirm that the materials they are using in training are misleading. for instance convicted felons are ineligible to vote in wisconsin, and that's not true. >> yeah it's suspicious especially coming from a campaign in virginia that tried to have 16,000 voter registrations thrown out, simply because they feared that people might vote for the other guy. it's one thing to contest votes, it is one thing to contest voters, it's something else to contest voter registration. and that hyper[ inaudible ] of the process is just something we have to back off of. we have to get back into a place where everybody in this country
9:39am
should have the right to vote and voting is a right, not a privilege. >> stephanie: exactly, ben. and i think it's telling, particularly in this wisconsin case they instructed their poll watchers not to disclose any affiliation with the campaign. they were told to list themselves as concerned citizens. >> yeah that's -- look that's -- that's highly suspect, highly suspicious certainly deserving of a full investigation, and if it is found to be intentional, then somebody needs to go to jail. >> stephanie: and ben, reassure my listeners, because it seems like the obama administration has pretty much been all over this. obviously we have won at the courthouse in pretty much every state, in this wisconsin one, they wrote there are certainly
9:40am
concerns under wisconsin law, take all necessary steps to protect the rights of our voters. it seems like the obama team is really on the ball on this am i right? >> yes, [ inaudible ] has done a great job of frankly rebuilding a function that had been almost completely decimated by the bush administration, but we have seen since 2000 secretaries of state across the country, hyperpartism, and engaging in behavior that is anti-democratic, and goes against the spirit and the express purpose of their positions. >> stephanie: yeah. ben, absolutely, too many people have died for this right. do not let them take away your
9:41am
right to vote. tell people where they can go to find out the rights in their state. >> folks can go to naacp.org and text v-o-t-e to 6227 and get it that way. and you are so right. and that's one of the things that makes me most proud of our folks in florida. fully over 125,000 votes were in florida, and that's -- you got to recall we started this year with sheriff brooke threatening to throw our people in jail because the office [ inaudible ] was turned in more than 48 hours after they took it out.
9:42am
and our people remember six years about the naacp president was blown up on christmas eve while leading a massive voter drive. >> stephanie: ben, thank you for that and thank you for your great work at the naacp. we also have gottavote.org. >> yes. >> stephanie: thank you ben. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> stephanie: i think this is from move on -- right, jacki? >> and o'reilly railed against this last night. >> stephanie: we posted it because the visual is even funnier -- >> turn the little minks mic on.
9:43am
>> is this how you get rid of me -- what in what do you want from me? is this the ad you sent me yesterday. >> stephanie: yes. >> from what i have been able to confirm, yes. >> i was born in 1950 during world war i. my first vote was in 1940 for franklin d roosevelt, and i have not missed an election since. and i want the republican party to know, your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables romney to oust barack obama, we will burn this mother [ censor bleep ] down. >> i have four generations of family on this earth. and my life has been very blessed. and if the republicans steal
9:44am
this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him the biggest [ censor bleep ] punch. >> i served in world war ii and i have a message for kids democrats, for anyone who cares about honest elections, if you let the republicans do this to you again, after we die, we're going to look down on you from heaven and make a point of watching you have sex every time. [ laughter ] >> no matter how kinky. >> especially if we are related. the only way to stop the gop from stealing the election is to make sure it isn't even close. go to votersrising.org.
9:45am
>> sign up to vote. >> yeah. [ applause ] >> stephanie: that's mosted on our facebook page. >> yes. >> stephanie: forty-five minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: call the political party line now. 1-800-steph-1-2. ♪ (vo) this election, there's a new sheriff in town, and she's going to cut through the noise. wanda sykes will be keeping it simple, boiling it down, shaving the head of this beast ... >> ah, shut your yap!

9:51am
>> of course. >> stephanie: kevin in orange county you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi, kevin. >> hey, gang. two things i'll make them quick. with the chris christie thing, i have malice of forethought that he is doing this with any kind of cynical thoughts but i do think now if and when he does criticize obama in the future it is going hit hard -- >> stephanie: yeah but that will be tough for him to do before the election -- >> caller: i don't think it is going to happen before the election at all. i'm saying in the next couple of years, if he criticizes obama, because now he has everybody thinking this guy tells the truth -- >> stephanie: right. i think he fact that it took him what chris, twenty-five minutes
9:52am
to mention mitt romney during his campaign speech if you thought the look on ann romney's face was bad during the convention, think what it must look like now. >> caller: yeah, i just think a consequence of what is going on now, is that if he does criticize him in the next couple of years, then it is going to hit a lot harder than it would have if this didn't happen. >> stephanie: yeah we'll see. it is interesting this is the headline this morning -- hurricane sandy is chris christie throwing mitt romney under the bus. chris christie has heaped obama's handling of the storm for three straight days.
9:53am
romney has a christie problem and a obama problem. there they are, president obama and chris christie were touring new jersey together. and it honestly looked authentic too. >> obama: what i can promise you is the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. >> oh conservatives hate hearing that. >> ah! >> stephanie: didn't that one headline say it all, bush's fema director says obama reacted too quickly. >> you are doing it too quickly. not enough people have died yet. >> stephanie: even the picture of them on marine one shows you the resources of the federal government in terms of assessing the damage quickly.
9:54am
the fact that he gave them the number at the white house directly. yeah, this has not been like one or two comments he said i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and passion. oh how much do they hate the c word. >> obama: we will follow up to make sure you get all of the help you need until you have rebuilt. >> stephanie: he said he discussed all of the specific problems with the president, i'm pleased to report he strung in to action immediately to get those things. >> obama: governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm, and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making
9:55am
sure the people in new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so i just want to thank him for his extrordanaire leadership and partnership. >> ahhhhh! >> i can't imagine what is going on in the romney camp. >> stephanie: no. and they don't know how to respond. kevin madden or whatever his name is -- even they realize that they are in the middle of a national disaster. chris christie. >> i discussed all of those issues today with the president, and i'm pleased to report he has sprung into action immediately while we were riding in the car together. so i want to thank him for that. i think is our sixth conversation since the weekend. >> ahhhhh! cooperation! ah! >> that's another c word they
9:56am
hate cooperation. >> stephanie: yeah he has been up against this solid wall of obstructionism that's why i keep saying get him people he can work with like chris christie. governor christie. >> we have a great working relationship to make sure we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do cannot think the president enough for his compassion and concern. >> stephanie: i can just imagine rush limbaugh sputtering -- >> oh! socialist! commie! god! oxycontin! >> stephanie: romney was back campaigning with the very appealing reince prebus.
9:57am
>> stephanie: thank you. kevin madden was asked by reporters whether he agreed with christie whether obama was doing a good job, and he said -- i believe the response is still going on so i'm not in a position to qualify the response by the federal government i believe it is still ongoing. you are hoping he screws up later. >> i'm waiting for him to screw up and then i'll comment. but right now it's on going, and going on and going on -- >> stephanie: i need to get going now, because this is awkward. i'm going to ski i'm going to be on with the governor tomorrow night. she is awesome. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show."

[♪ theme music ♪] >> stephanie: oh jacki schechner, we can all -- can't we all just -- we can relate to men exaggerating size. this is now you know -- >> i don't know where this is going -- >> when have you been able to relate to that? >> stephanie: the romney campaign has exaggerated the size of an event with an altered image. they had this photo shopped. it was pasted together on photo shop to make it look well-attended. >> it's all smoke and mirrors
10:00am
all of this mitt mittdom. >> stephanie: right. >> you have to see the photo shop picture, because the sign says mitt romney they add several letters. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: they are not even good athoto shop.. nono >> what is l lt t you can't fake it well? [ laughter ] >> we knew this was likely to be the most expensive election season ever. the numbers ares and on the initialling. the total price tag $6 billion. the presidential election alone accounts for at least $2.6 billion which would be a little bit less than 2008 a total of $2.8 billion spent four years ago, but then talk a about house and senate candidates $1.2 billion, house spending up senate spending down a little bit, and then $970 million by outside groups like super pacs and non-profits.
10:01am
it's all estimated math but that's where the estimate is right now, and what is important to keep in mind is the hundreds of millions of dollars we don't know about because there are groups like cross road's and the chamber of commerce which said they are doing issue advocacy work and don't have to report how much they are spending. there is are super pac in missouri just dropped $800,000 on aed for todd akin even though they claim he isn't that first choice. >> you don't have to agree with everything he says but you can be sure that akin will vote for romney's policies. >> it's called the now or never pac, and they want voters to choose todd akin so romney will have a senate to work with. national republicans still

10:07am
nearly as many conservatives, 73% as liberals, [ inaudible ] that is again, almost 80%, jim. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: the president has reached 50% nationally. and then jacki covered some of the state-by-state wisconsin eight point lead michigan -- yadda, yadda, yadda. the point is many people are fired up now. ♪ ♪ forward, forward, forward ♪ ♪ we must move forward ♪ ♪ they have no reason reason but we have the perfect plan we must move forward and vote for

10:09am
it just shows desperation from romney. first was during the debate when he tried to take credit for the auto rescue after saying detroit should go bankrupt and then he tried to take credit for the rescue now he is changing gears and trying to make up even more facts and jobs going overseas. this is an act of desperation, and i think certainly the people here in the state of michigan know the president did a courageous thing and it has been very successful. >> stephanie: clearly the people of michigan had the good taste to elect you, and the romney camp was saying we're going to be competitive in michigan and a new ppp poll shows obama leading 53-45 correct? >> yes, it looks like the
10:10am
president is getting momentum once again. >> stephanie: not only is this a flat-out lie, but insults the intelligence of people in places like michigan doesn't it? >> it certainly does. we're talking about hundreds of thousands of jobs that have been created as a result of the rescue, and the center for automotive research has claimed and documented that over a million jobs were saved as a result of that rescue and for mr. romney to put out ads about jobs going to china, when you have general motors coming out with a statement, you may have seen their statement that said basically -- this is a quote -- clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days so the companies are just outraged by these comments. >> stephanie: yeah. representative he went on to say
10:11am
no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worse will -- [ inaudible ]. have you ever seen car companies get into the middle of a campaign like this but i feel like they almost have to. >> yeah they have to. they want to stay out of partisan politics but they can't allow these -- these lies to go forward, particularly when they are so outrageous, and as they say, politics in the most cynical form which is unfortunate there someone who is running for-president. this goes to the very character of the individual. >> stephanie: thank you. that is the word there. they said their comments don't refute anything in oured a -- here we go again, it is carefully in the narrowest sense, after romney outright
10:12am
misstated that jeep was considering shipping jobs to china, which first of all is fear mongering. and they only jeep was looking at expanding in china, but it is completely unrelated to their domestic work force. so obviously the innuendo behind the ads is clear, and nothing could be farther from the truth, right? >> absolutely. and it's clear billions of dollars being invested in those facilities and thousands of jobs being created here in michigan and thousands of jobs were saved across the united states because of that. these are good paying middle class jobs and once again the president did a bold thing. i was in the middle of all of that. it was a very ugly and scary
10:13am
time and the president made a decision that was not very popular, and he did it because he believed in the american workers and in that investment and it has paid off, and we can't get mr. romney to say this was a success. >> stephanie: will mitt romney's grossly misleading jeep to china ad help him win? you would hope that people are not that stupid? >> oh absolutely. and that's why the auto companies came out with these statements. so certainly i have faith in the american people and certainly folks in the midwest who have been through that very rough time and know where we are today. they are not going to be swayed by this. you have to call it out very aggressively as the auto
10:14am
companies have and other people. including newspapers saying this is just outrageous. >> stephanie: well good for them. good for them. fine, fine products coming out of michigan not just jeeps, but debbie stabenow and rent gary peters. [ applause ] >> >> stephanie: thank you. >> thank you. >> stephanie: how about this headline? several newspapers in ohio said the claims show that romney is flailing in ohio.
10:15am
and now there is a new radio version in the exact same spot. keep going, mittens. keep going. why don't you drop some more unneeded canned goods on people. somebody is saying if we can muddy the issue enough it might make all of the difference -- you know but obviously people have different opinions on it. the "washington post" said it's startling that romney thinks people will believe this stuff. "mother jones" even saying we won't know until election day, i would like to believe that people are smarter than this. i can't believe he is doubling down. like the representative was saying since when do auto companies get into politics -- >> right. >> stephanie: excuse me. jeanie in tennessee.

>> caller: hi steph. i love your show. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i think you are awesome. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i live new york i have a sister in new jersey and yesterday when i heard governor romney cleaning up those messes and what is going on out there, how hard it was for him and some of his buddies to clean up a football field in college, it made me sick. >> stephanie: i remember one time i cleaned up paper products on a football field. he is so weird. >> caller: yeah. the fact that he says this stuff is scary enough but the fact that people listen and hold up signs, yay, go romney is horrifying to me. >> stephanie: yeah. and people have lost their houses and their loved ones in some cases --
